Axle Spring Brackets
I've decided the time has come for me to correct the weird spring angle I have due to lowering and axle relocation.
Yes, I've measured all the angles and dialed in the pinion angle correctly. So since future plans do include airbags I though I might as well fab up a bracket that'll do double duty.
After getting the whole car in the air and level and the rear axle supported at ride height without the springs installed, I proceeded to drop a plumb bob and start making a bunch of measurements. The result is the other photo.
Similar to many jeep offset brackets, I picked up some 4"x4" 3/16th Wall Square Tube this weekend to cut the brackets out of.
I will post photos as I go.
I guess the one question I do have at this point is could this possibly be welded using a 110v Lincoln MIG with flux core if I take my dear sweet time and weld both sides of the flanges to the axle shaft, or will I end up tacking it then pulling the axle and hauling it to somebody with more power?
'95 B4U LT1/T56 in Purple Pearl. 24x 355 with I believe most of the bolt-ons.
'63 C10 LT1/4L60E from B-Body. Rides like a Cadillac thanks to air bags.
'06 GTO LS2/T56 Torrid Red with CAI and Borla Cat-back thanks to the lady who rear ended me.
Still in Wichita.
